An actor con is a fan convention where the guest speakers include actors who have appeared in productions of interest to fans. For example, a Star Trek actor con might invite William Shatner.

Actor cons are usually for-profit, due to the expense of paying big-name actors to appear. However, some fan-run conventions do invite actors and other industry people.
